My Next Painting

Sunflowers LeMoyne Sketch

Here’s the sketch for my next painting of a still life of sunflowers in a jar. I don’t usually paint flowers but I think I’ll like sunflowers because of their large, graphic nature. I bought the flowers and borrowed the jar and took the photo in my yard with my iPhone. I was able to control the composition and lighting that way. I always sketch my paintings first then transfer the sketch to the canvas by rubbing graphite on the back of the drawing and then hold it canvas and go over the front with a thick pencil and transfer like carbon paper. I’ll keep you posted on the progress of my latest painting.
